Article Submission Assistance

7 replies
I found a very helpful thread under "Article Submission".

This is really a follow on query.

If I want to submit articles to, say, 50 top sites, it could be very time consuming.

Can you recommend the best way to quickly distribute an article (without spinning), to a large number of directories?

Low cost or free would help, and must work on a Mac.

Thanks
Alan

    I have not used it myself, but I've seen Traffic Geyser recommended several times.

    You can use "Article Marketing Robot" without spinning.

    I've certainly heard considerably better impressions/opinions, overall, about that one than about any of its equivalents.

    You'll find plenty of information about it in threads here (maybe in the "Reviews" section?). Be careful, though, to try to distinguish between comments from those who have bought it and are using it and those who are themselves only promoting it as affiliates.

    I believe it costs $87. I don't know whether it works on a Mac.

    All you can get from each submission like that, though, Alan, to 50 article directories, is 50 non-context-relevant PR-0 backlinks. As the authors of so many of the standard, recognised, authority SEO text-books make clear, one would typically need something between 50,000 and 100,000 of those backlinks to confer the link-juice equivalent to one decent backlink from a relevant authority site. And that was even before Google's algorithm change apparently devalued article directories still further: my guess is that the true number is actually far higher than that, now (this last point is opinion only, though). In other words, the SEO value is absolutely minuscule.

    I used to do this myself, a couple of years ago (both with and without "spinning"), but after some months of careful monitoring and testing, I've long since given it all up as a complete waste of my time. And it's clearly worth even less now than it was then. "Just saying!"

      Hi Alexa
      Did I misunderstand? Are you saying you've stopped submitting to article directories?
      If so, what are you doing as an alternative with your creative work?

      Confused Alan :confused:

        I've stopped submitting to extra article directories for the "value" of their backlinks (because they have next-to-no "value"). I'm an article marketer, not an article directory marketer.

        I submit to EZA (after indexation on my own sites, obviously) because that's the directory from which my work gets syndicated. (And I often submit additionally to either GoArticles or ArticlesBase because if I didn't do that, and EZA happened to disappear tomorrow, it would be inconvenient for me. I certainly don't expect it to happen, though - far from it - I'm just "cautious"!).

        Depending on article directories for traffic and/or backlinks is futile indeed. It's one of the things that you can almost guarantee has been a pretty substantial part of the method of almost all the people starting off and posting in threads under titles like "Article Marketing Is Dead" (you must have seen a few hundred of those threads here?).

        Perhaps you remember this conversation (the whole thread, I mean, not just that post)?

          As your syndicated outlets grow, you can use autoresponders for delivery. Most commercial autoresponders have an RSS function, or you can set up your syndicate lists segmented by niche and broadcast your articles.

          I did indeed remember our previous conversation. You're my main 'go to' person for article knowledge.

          As you've probably guessed, I'm taking a serious look at the methods and advantages of article marketing (as part o the mix), but I'm still trying to work out what steps to include to get value. By asking my original quetion, I'm trying to see if I can step up the game a little.
          Can I take it that there's still value in using directories to get some traffic/visitors, even is the backlink value is minmal? Otherwise, what's the point?

          You used the term, " . . . my work gets syndicated . . .". Can you explain this term in idiot proof language?

          D'you ever sleep?
